    20.4 one down! The frustration of not getting the sweep right appears to have got to him, it's flighted outside off, goes for the reverse-sweep, ends up getting a top edge straight to Hilfenhaus at short third man 106/1
    27.1 run-out, blame Ponting, short outside off, punched wide of Ponting at extra cover and they attempt a suicidal single, he picked it up cleanly and returned an accurate throw to Paine who took off the bails to find Denly well short 129/2
    28.6 given! Bowled on a good length on middle and leg, gets half-forward to work it square, misses and is struck plumb in front of the stumps 133/3
    29.2 it's getting more interesting now, short of a length outside off, tries to force it from the crease through point with a slightly opened face, gets a thin edge straight to Paine who takes a sharp one 137/4
    not out

    31.4 Morgan goes! They've opened up the game now, short and wide, goes for the cut, gets a thick edge straight to Paine 141/5
    36.2 Prior goes! Hilfenhaus makes up somewhat with an important wicket, bowled on a good length on the off, pushed through straight to Ponting at extra cover, little intent in that shot, just a chip 162/6
